you think you'd be vulnerable. but they were making into security leaks from the obama administration were making us vulnerable. >> what i find disturbing is the following. you read about bossed rove come as you want bring up information about a new kind of favorable. but in this discussion at least, there was no discussion at all that may be the democratic party is for lack of a better word, just as corrupt. well, you all know about the corruption of mr. soros, or at least the monies that he is spending, which you don't even bother to discuss. we know about the corruption of chicago politics and we also know a multi-you the truth. this is an incident, which disturbs me more than anything. when there are bought panthers not allowing white people to go into the in a certain election. it wasn't too long ago, okay? greater moment. so my question is -- all right -- so if you want to question, i will give you a question. why are you not presenting an unbiased view in both respects? you're making him to be the worst person and it's not because corruption exists on the other side as well. >>
